Another take on Contador by a former Pro

Jaksche comments on Contador

Former Tinkoff Credit Systems rider Jörg Jaksche, who recently admitted to being involved in Operación Puerto, has said it would be a 'reasonable assumption' that Tour de France winner Alberto Contador (Discovery Channel) is the "A.C." listed in the Puerto documents.

"If you haven't been turned into a woman, there was no reason other than doping to go to the gynecologist Fuentes," the German told Süddeutsche Zeitung. "I can say for myself, that I am the JJ in the document 31 and that I doped as stated there." When asked whether the "A.C." listed on the document could be Contador, Jaksche resonded: "That would at least be a reasonable assumption."

But Jaksche added that Contador is the only person who knows about his own situation. "He is the only one who knows," he said.

Contador signed with Manolo Saiz's O.N.C.E. - Eroski as a junior rider in 2002, where he was one of Jaksche's teammates, but the 24 year-old has defended any links with the Spanish doping ring, saying his involvement with Saiz as an employee was merely bad timing. "I was in the wrong team at the wrong time and somehow my name got among the documents, but the UCI corrected the mistake and now I've got no link to Puerto," he said on the weekend.

In another interview, with Bayern 3 radio, Jaksche defended T-Mobile Team, calling Patrik Sinkewitz an exception and saying he would trust the rest of the team. "The most important thing is the test for blood-doping, and T-Mobile is the only team that does that," he said.

I find his comments on T-Mobile to be more interesting than his remarks about Contador.

Don't wait for Discovery to test riders for anything, these are the guys who took on Basso with open arms, and graduated Hamilton, Andreu and Landis.
It would be insanely hypocritical for Armstrong to fire riders for doping.
So there are pages that have "A.C." written on them, so AC was the only one who could keep up with Rasmussen (and even beat him). Means nothing.

There is a psychological malady known as leveling in which someone who has a bad behavior tries to point out that he or she is not alone in this, as a way of saying that the behavior isn't bad.

And the journalist dropped the ball. Fuentes was a gynecologist. More recently he had become an excercise physiologist. Jackshe hass been caught. He's not unbiased.
